The Bend City Council discussed changes to the City's agreement with neighborhood associations during its meeting Wednesday night. City Manager Eric King says the City of Bend says with all their recent cuts, had to lay off all the employees of the office of neighborhood associations. The Council is just working out an agreement that reflects what they're doing. “We still see the neighborhood association as a vital link with the City. We just don't have the resources to support the staff, when it was formed ten years ago. So we decided, let's remove the requirement, not enforceable no staff. And still provide grants all be it a lot less money providing.” The Council tabled the motion, but will take up the discussion again at future meetings. King was the guest on KBND's "Your Town" Thursday morning.
